Larry Norman died Sunday of heart failure. He was called the 'father of Christian rock' and I used to have all his albums....those big, black vinyl thingies. He wrote, I Wish We'd All Been Ready , Only Visiting This Planet, UFO, Why Don't You Look into Jesus, etc, etc. I used to know them all.
He's probably best known for this song:
But this is why he was so controversial: (mild for today's audience, but back then...yikes. Apparently this video is from the 80's...ha...but he wrote it back in the early 70's I think)
He was keeping it real before the Church realized what was really happening out there.
